LYRICS

Zoom out got a new perspective

I’m chillin’ out with a cooler beverage

Been thinkin’ about how good it sounds

 

That even though we have our struggles

The time we have to tuck and rumble

Is only ours, is only ours

 

Spent all day in a daze

I woke up 9AM today I’m about to get paid

7-11 across the Way

Rocking’ with my big shades on

You know I’ve got my game on

 

I realize you might not get to reach yourself

Or the confidence at all

And now I have to fall

And take care of it all

 

Zoom out got a new perspective

I’m chilling’ out with a cooler beverage

Been thinking about how good it sounds

 

That even though we have our struggles

The time we have to tuck and rumble

It’s only ours, it’s only ours

 

When you were gone I had the ganj

Green from dusk ‘til dawn

Dreaming about the day you’d come

And run into my arms

 

Then that day came around

I was expecting flutes and horns

But neither of us had heard

The quiet before the storm

 

I realize you might not get to reach yourself

Or the confidence at all

And now I have to fall

And take care of it all

 

Zoom out got a new perspective

I’m chilling’ out with a cooler beverage

Been thinking’ about how good it sounds

 

That even though we have our struggles

The time we have to tuck and rumble

It’s only ours, it’s only ours

 

To make the most the things we love

And chase the one she brings the feeling of

A god above

 

I realize it takes an eye of gold

To point out what I find out

Yesterday, oh yesterday

STORY

This song took me FOREVER to finalize. I originally it in the winter of 2014, when I was a sophomore in college.

Here I am performing it from my apartment in Prague my senior year looking like a real sad boy.

PERFORMANCE VIDEOS

Here’s another snippet live from Buzzfeed Studios in LA in the summer of 2016.

I made about twenty versions of this song and was never satisfied. After bringing the right team together

I can say I’m extremely happy to present the version I’ve shared with you today!
